The Novrosk Peninsula: the Soviet naval base has been abandoned, the nuclear submarines are rusting and rotting. Cold, isolated, forgotten.Until the Russian Special Forces arrive - and discover that the Doctor and his companions are here too. But there is something else in Novrosk. Something that pre-dates even the stone circle on the cliff top. Something that is at last waking, hunting, killing....

Can the Doctor and his friends stay alive long enough to learn the truth? With time running out, they must discover who is really responsible for the Deviant Strain...

.Featuring the Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston, together with Rose and Captain Jack as played by Billie Piper and John Barrowman in the hit series from BBC Television.

    " Eccelston Doctor /Rose Tyler/Jack Harkness "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aac | 2/12/2014

    " I wasn't very enthusiastic about this book- no alien planets. Rose was a bit cardboard. Only saw a bit of personality a few times. The book was good but the hero of the book was Jack. His character development is believable and I really loved his maturity. "

    " The Doctor and his companions can never have a day off. Jack accidentally pushes a button that answers a distress call in the TARDIS, the doctor must answer it. When they arrive at their destination they discover that they are in a secluded Russian village. The village has been experiencing odd problems for some time now. Soon they hear of a mysterious death and the strange case of a girl who was once young and full of life who is now aged and lifeless. Eventually, special agents arrive and they do not immediately like the Doctor and his friends. But they learn to work together. Rose and Jack really play more of a role in this novel in the Doctor. I really feel that the Doctor is behind the scenes and I would like to read more chapters from his viewpoint. I feel we get a different look at Jack in this novel as he is not talked about being such a flirt in this one and just more concerned because it is the right thing to do. But I think being with Rose and the Doctor makes you a better person. The story line is very interesting and I can picture this book as part of the show. I would recommend Doctor Who- The Deviant Strain to readers who enjoy Doctor Who novels and readers who enjoy science fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh Harris | 1/31/2014

    " The first half of this book is pretty great, but after that it gets incredibly boring. I pretty much had to force myself to finish this thing. I'm giving it three stars rather than two, mainly because I really like this writer's style of writing. It's just a shame that the book drags out and made me want to nap. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eleanor | 1/29/2014

    " A bit disappointing but not a bad story. Unfortunately it features the incredibly annoying Captain Jack Harkness, although his character was quite low-key and not as objectionably arrogant as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelseypearl | 1/27/2014

    " Seemed like typical story, with lots of running. It is generally well-written and engaging. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle Potter | 1/19/2014

    " This one was pretty good. I was excited to see Jack, and the story was interesting. I thought the Doctor took a bit long to catch on to what was going on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/5/2014

    " After reading the first few chapters I could not get into this book but I carried on reading it and by the end it turned out to be a good book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clara | 1/1/2014

    " I loved that Jack was also in this one! He's character helped propel everything forward. My only problem was that it seemed the last half was one continuous scene with no real pause and seemed so drawn out and stretched compared to the first half. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Vandrew | 12/13/2013

    " It's a Tommyknockers-meet-The-Thing adventure with some nice elements. I was not happy with Jack's portrayal, though. (view spoiler)[This is his very early time with the Doctor, yet he is uncharacteristically heroic. And no flirting? Unbelievable. (hide spoiler)] "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/9/2013

    " Interesting at first, but the end is very heavy on the action in a boring, logistical sort of way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sylence | 11/13/2013

    " Good story set in Russia with both Rose Tyler and Jack Harkness. This would have been a good episode for the show actually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 8/25/2013

    " Captain Jeck answers a distress call that causes the Tardis to go to an island in Russia. There's weird energy and people are getting killed. It's nice and atmospheric, though a bit predictable plot wise at time. A quick read and a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noah Soudrette | 5/23/2013

    " There's a lot to like about this book... but sadly not enough. the strong points are the characterizations, and the cool setting of an old Soviet submarine yard. The plot is a bit loosey goosey, and the last 50 pages of the book are simply boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 5/15/2013

    " This book captures some of the fun of the television series with characterizations that feel right and an eerie setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Uliamos | 3/8/2013

    " Interesting, solid story, nice to now have Jack added to the team. But nothing that makes this book special or extraordinary, no real plot twist or anything. Nonetheless a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shazzer | 3/4/2013

    " Not one of the stronger Doctor Who novels; I didn't care for the story, which was a bit slap-bang and suffered from sudden-solution-syndrome (which admittedly, happens a lot with Doctor Who). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vania Liberoff | 12/28/2012

    " No es muy bueno, lamentablemente. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karla | 4/20/2012

    " Just okay. It seemed like a lot of running in circles some of which is just part of the Doctor Who fun but in this book it's just a bit too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Duff | 1/30/2012

    " I will admit that if I was basing my rating purely on the story then it would only be two stars,maybe three if I was feeling generous.However it features The Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston and he is my favourite Doctor "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 8/3/2011

    " So many Doctor Who books (and I have all the new ones)....a written review is unnecessary for them all. "
